TE: Dawson Knox

Dawson Knox had surgery Tuesday on his broken hand.

The Bills are heading into their bye week, so Knox has an additional week to recover. There's no clear timeline on his return, with the tight end's goal to return "as soon as possible." Fantasy managers will need a backup option for Week 7, and should plan to have additional options for the following few weeks. Tommy Sweeney may have streaming viability while Knox is out, but the Bills did not heavily utilize the tight end in 2020, so the biggest impact of Knox's absence could be more routes for Gabriel Davis.
